The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has found what it calls ‘troubling’ figures on delays caused by the air traffic control (ATC) staff shortages and strikes affecting much of Europe this summer.
The data shows that delays caused by ATC have more than doubled since 2017 to 47,000 minutes per day. The average delay per flight was 20 minutes in July, while the worst was 337 minutes.
Delays have been blamed on staff shortages, capacity shortage, the weather and strikes.
